My experience is based in knowing that the assistant editor’s job is to be the facilitator for the editor and the producers. My duties are based on social skills, understanding of visual storytelling grammar, and my technical capacity in organizing and anticipating the script elements needed by the editor using the script as a guide when available. In its absence, the dailies footage becomes the assistant editor’s best guide to prepare the project window for the editor. My experience and studies include setting up the cutting room for the editor, setting up the equipment, calibrating the video and audio monitors and working with and SD and HD workflows, such as, Panasonic P2, Sony XDCAM EX, Canon DSLR and RED camera formats, in addition, setting up the specs and format sheet for master and split clean output for network broadcast delivery requirements.
